There are primate studies going on at the NIH (Cutler and Ingram) and the
University of Wisconsin (Ershler and Weindruch). Primates live a long time,
so it's still too early to see if dietary restriction has an effect on
longevity. I seem to recall that the Wisconsin researchers have seen some
beneficial effects on immune function.

Of course, the best-known DR researcher is Roy Walford, who's written a
couple of books on the subject, most notably The 120 Year Diet. Walford
himself claims to have been eating a calorie-restricted diet for years. Hmmm.
